Our preschool program provides your child with the physical, cognitive, and social tools to excel in kindergarten and beyond.
- Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). We place our infants in a safe, peaceful environment in which our experienced caregivers provide the nurturing each child needs.
- Toddler Childcare (ages 1 to 2). In this toddler childcare program, your toddler will start to explore the world via our theme-based curriculum that encourages play, language, and discovery.
- Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). We engage children in activities that develop their language skills, encourage a love of reading, and promote a healthy lifestyle in our Early Learners program.
- Preschool (ages 3 to 4). Preschoolers start to build on prior areas of development and we expose them to new areas of learning, including math, science, and social studies.
- Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). In this Pre-Kindergarten program, we work to expand your child’s literacy, vocabulary, math, problem solving, and motor skills.
At Gateway Academy in Centennial, CO we strive to promoting positive social and emotional development in all of our children.
What Makes Our Preschool in Centennial, Colorado Unique
Gateway Academy, Centennial is a ‘hands-on’ learning environment where children experience fun while they learn. For example, every spring, we hatch our own butterflies and ladybugs. Throughout the year, we provide in-house field trips to extend the learning process in areas, such as music, science, and culture. One of our staff’s favorite days is our Transportation Fair, where we invite a variety of community helpers to bring their trucks and vehicles and we get to explore them.
Our Ascend Curriculum allows us to create an individualized learning experience for each of our students. Teachers focus on developing new skills every month and customize how that skill is introduced based on the interests and learning styles of each child.
To ensure your child’s success, we provide developmental evaluations twice a year, including conferences for preschoolers. We also provide written daily communication for each child.
To promote physical development, we provide a daily nutritional breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, included in the price of tuition. We also offer 60 minutes of exercise each day to complement our nutritional menu and healthy lifestyle.
